Giant trevally are the hoodlums of the reef! They grow to over 100lb and are renowned for breaking inferior quality rods, reels and terminal tackle. Once hooked, the "GT" (as they are commonly known) will head for the bottom or nearest structure to cut you off! Pound for pound they are arguably the toughest fighting fish. The Great Barrier Reef and Whitsunday Islands boast a healthy population of GT's. They are a challenge to catch when using popping lures and metal jigs. Mix that with shallow reefs and bommies where they are found and you have a real fight to land these fish. Casting surface blooping poppers around schools of fusiliers is a sure fire way of getting a spectacular surface strike from these brutes of the reef. Although GT's are the main target with the poppers, we can also hook spanish mackerel, barracuda and coral trout. When the baitfish are deeper in the water column we deploy large metal knife jigs which are a very successful method of hooking GT's, spanish mackerel and coral trout. We have released GT's over 40kg with even bigger ones hooked. The average size is around 20kg which will still press the best anglers and gear.
